Each year 5th grade GATE students get to go on a trip to SeaCamp. This year was Braxton's turn to go. He has been waiting to go since 3rd grade, but about two weeks before the trip, he was sick to his stomach every night, and kept saying he really didn't want to go. I told him that he didn't have a choice, and that he would have a lot of fun. They left on Sunday, May 10th at noon, and returned on Tuesday, May 12th at 10:00pm. Needless to say, he thought the trip was AWESOME, and maybe too short. He had a great time. SeaCamp is in San Diego, and it's three days of hands on training with sea animals. They went on a boat ride, to fish, and to look at sea lions. Snorkeling, got to hold some of the underwater life, went boogie boarding, disected a squid and a fish, etc. The whole trip is about marine biology, which is something that has interested Braxton since we went to Sea World a few years ago. It was a great experience and I am so glad Braxton was able to go.
